As the table five changed composition, with Pokermantis moved, a shortie busted, and Shaotong Chang moving into the 1 seat, the demeanor had completely changed.
Always serious Monro Secor opened from under the gun to 20,000 at 4/8, and Bob Flacco immediately called from the field – likely a very playable hand to expose himself to the three bet this way.Secor opens, and Flacco, foreground, calls, but the blind needs some time, seeming to consider all three options.
The rest folded, but completing the action was not easy for the big blind. He seemed pained, and finally called. Three players in the pot and already this hand was a tad tense and slow to develop.
On , with straight and flush draws available, the tormented blind checked it over to Monro. Secor appeared to want to bet, then decided instead to shove for his remaining stack – a fairly significant overbet.
Flacco got the count and took his time, he went through his stack, counting everything down. Clearly he did not believe Secor, who can be aggressive.Monro, about to shove into Flacco, seat 1.
However, he pitched in his cards after a good two minutes.
Then the big blind needed time as well. The table, joking a level before, had not said a word the entire time.
Eventually, the big folded, and the hands remained a mystery. However, it’s big pot for Secor nontheless, turning his 127,000 into more than 175,000 with a showdown.
Meanwhile on 1, a more animated debate. Ron Alina took a gamble with an ace-rag versus a short stack, crying out for an ace to save him on the river. But the shortstack wasn’t having any of it.Alina, not at risk, gets up to see if he can get there. A6 vs. 108 for seat 7, foreground.
“You’ve won enough flips! C’mon.”
Alina smiles and sits down, losing about 32,000.
